Toads Place - Updates

Mos Def
Friday, October 3, 8:00 PM
Postponed until Oct. 3 - All tickets purchased for August 7 will be honored. Refunds will be available until Sept. 8, 2008.

Mos Def is one of a handful of artists who have breached the gap between underground and mainstream, music and film, small venues and main stage festival performances, and has done so with incredible success. Beginning with music in the mid 90’s, Mos Def found himself to be one of the primary hip-hop artists leading a charge from back alley rhymes to featured spots on radio and MTV. This is one performance not to be missed here at Toad’s Place of Richmond where we welcome Mos Def to our line-up “Where the Legends Play.”

Paint the Nation Tour w/
Abstract Rude
DJ Rare Groove
Wednesday, October 8, 7PM
Eleven years after becoming the first hip-hop act to put the Twin Cities on the map, Atmosphere has grown into one of the most accomplished MC/producer duos around. Between Slug and Ant, they’ve released six albums, 11 Sad Clown tour albums and various side-projects like Felt — amounting in well over a million units sold. And along the way have performed to sold-out crowds everywhere from modest sized venues in their hometown to colossal festivals in Japan. Since releasing their 1997 debut, Overcast!, Ant’s ASR-born melodic beats and Slug’s open book and observational style of rapping continues to evolve into hip-hop that’s more honest — more textured. And the praise for these Rhymesayers pioneers hasn’t stopped flowing in.
